Knee Osteoarthritis is the second most common disease in the world. High Tibial Osteotomy (HTO) offers a cost effective solution for thousands of patients who currently have no effective treatment options. The Toka- Surgical Simulator is a digital suite of tools to support surgeons in delivering this treatment. Using virtual data-imaging and 3D printing technologies surgeons will be able to train, plan and perform virtual surgery and personalised treatments.
The proposed project aims to deliver: 1) A precise preoperative landscape for surgeons to deliver surgical cost efficiency in the existing NHS context. 2) Reduced waiting times and post-operative stays. 3) Reduced future healthcare costs. 4) Improved patient outcomes.
